In 1971, Bob coached 10 and 11-year-old boys in a cross-country tour to promote mini-basketball. Throughout the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, he helped organize, and was a presenter, at a series of coaching clinics in the St. Vital School Division.  For 15 years, he organized the Glenlawn Collegiate Alumni Tournament to raise money for GCI student scholarships.  He coached the St. Andrews Super Saints to two Canadian Senior Men’s National Championships in 1975 and 1976. The provincial team he coached won the gold medal in the first Western Canada Summer Games in 1975. He was also coach of the Super Saints in 1978 when the team toured France and posted a record of 6 wins and only 1 loss.
